I would not take it seriously. Milwaukee Metalfest hasn't happened in 15 years, and the last time it happened the festival was very poorly run and a lot of bands paid to play. Apparently this guy reached out to some people last year, but as far as I know he has no real credibility nor means to put on a festival with international bands.

He's been emailing me for a few years about wanting to restart the festival, though his plans always seem to get pushed back to the next year for various reasons... *shrugs* So it's not spam, but the fest is not all that credible either, at the moment. No harm in sending him something, but I wouldn't really commit to anything serious until his plans have concretized into something more solid.

Yeah I have just had an e:mail from him.

A quick google tells me that I don't want to get involved.

But happy to reply out of mild curiosity to see what he is going to try and get out of the band in order to give us the slot at the festival. For me he was reference the year 2022 for the festival.
